The next time someone says no...just take the no and say have a good day. No, will not kill your ego, or harm you in anyway. No is no, she is not interested. Respect women, protect women, love women, see women for women.
Catcalling has forced us to recognize our differences. Because I'm a half-black, half-white biracial woman, my reality has been a little different from hers. We aren't approached by men in the same way.
As members of Congress -- as well as one candidate for the presidency -- repeatedly speak about rolling back women's reproductive rights, it's time to take a hard look at the actual status of women in the United States.
Making it easier for a harassed person to report is very important, but in general, companies need to do more, especially if they know that some of their employees are harassers.
By Wendy Gutierrez When I was 18 years old, my parents came into my room and told me that my aunt, who still lived in Cuba, had died. She was my fat...
At 14 years old, and now more than six years later, I still find it ridiculous that women have to worry about how they dress because of the attention it may bring to them. I dress the way I do to make myself feel pretty and powerful, not to get attention from anyone else.
I hate the smell of gin. That's what I kept thinking about as I watched HBO's movie, "Confirmation," which revisited the uproar surrounding Anita Hill's testimony during Clarence Thomas's confirmation hearings.
If we are in a position to do something, but we don't do it, the blood stains our hands too. So rather than pointing our fingers at women, please, can we instead ask ourselves this simple question? "What will I do?"
As scores of young women begin new jobs post-graduation-- for many their first summer in an office-- they face a workplace where they will undoubtedly be challenged, though hopefully not by unwanted advances. Those ways in those days decades ago would strike most young women today as unbelievably shocking.
I made just one tweet, but I could tweet dozens of stories, because sexual harassment really is an everyday occurrence. Reading the tweets makes me sad and angry.
It was during the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings for Thomas's nomination to the Supreme Court, when Anita Hill was forced to make her accusations against Clarence Thomas' sexual harassment, with absolutely nothing to gain and everything to lose.
Recently, presidential candidate John Kasich answered a freshman student's question about how she could "feel safer and more secure regarding sexual violence, harassment, and rape." According to CNN, Kasich said, "I'd also give you one bit of advice. Don't go to parties where there's a lot of alcohol. OK? Don't do that." The audience then applauded.
In the wake of the Toby Turner scandal, women in the online community are under even closer scrutiny than usual -- so it was refreshing to get some in...
Hill's recollection of incidents in which Thomas, her superior, had professed his interest in bestiality porn and Long Dong Silver, was a sobering wake-up call to members of the generation that had both endured the fanny-slapping Mad Men era and given rise to the women's-rights movement.
When I gave the niqab a try, I was shocked to realize the harassment only increased. I did everything right. I walked close to the wall, looked down while walking, avoided eye contact with men and didn't use perfume. I even covered my face, and yet those were the times I was harassed the most.
